Set at Iandra Castle, a beautiful homestead in the Weddin Shire, near Young, NSW, our vendors were inspired by the grandeur of the venue, the warm filtered light through the many gardens. 

Laura was photographed in Mrs Green's sewing room, using the exiting furniture in the room. The white light that filled the room, complimented her luminous make up, and the aim was to capture these reflections while showing off the lightness of her gown, and beauty in her floral bouquet. The stairs at the entry of Iandra were perfect for the styling using candles and draped pink linens.

Carrie and Sam- were actually married only 2 weeks prior to this shoot and Sam wore his own wedding suit! We captured this couple with a nod to Scotland in the styling of Carries hair and also her veil. They were captured in warm filtered afternoon light.

Myra- Structured and hard light was used to give Myra's look. We used the structure of the building to create a more gothic with whimsy appearance. Myra was capture in the back of the Iandra Castle.

The Setting at Iandra Castle for a more elegant look, I’ve used the Chambray black linen tablecloth layered over the top of white with Jeep green napkins draped between the plates & tied around the chairs with large round server plates in fig colour palette you’ll fall in love with matched with green provenzale tumblers from Casa E Cucina which come in a variety of colour combination all blow in mould and hand worked added purple wine glasses, cutlery, candelabra & candles to make it the more sophisticated look.

I used beautiful 100% European lovely linen white with a layered look of the Rustic Natural Linen runner designed in Sweden with a heavy organic weave comes also in a natural beige frayed edge tablecloth, pairing with a mix and match napkins in Litchi (pink) from Casa E Cucina. I’ve added the cloud bell vase in Nude from Marmoset Found with flax ceramic dinner plates from Mediterranean Markets, a piece you’ll love to show off and beautiful royal albert floral plates in bone china and the gorgeous provenzale tumblers in so many inspiring colours and designs with added flowers, cutlery and champagne bucket from Emac and Lawson with the amazing backdrop of the Lavender hedge path

The warmth of beauty of antiqued brass ice bucket is just a statement piece on its own or added flowers and forage as we’ve done here for the photo shoot this amazing round wine cooler is from our stockist Florabelle Imports. Great piece for any event filled with wine and ice or just on it’s own.

The lovely Maya we used beautiful cushions from Sage & Clare with a mix of provenzale tumblers and Flemington pink wine glasses from Indigo Love on a silver tray for a bit of fun. Artful and stylish acrylic has amassed a loyal cult following, they are incredibly beautiful, completely functional and perfect for outdoors, picnics, glamping or for that perfect addition to your dining table with curating unique table-scapes for events or special soriee.

With the lovely Laura the Candles on the steps of Iandra Castle are from A Little Light stockist the chapel and cathedral candles in ivory are practical and affordable but so divine to use everyday with large round lanterns in natural and flowers mixed in with a little Litchi tablecloth draped and tied over the handrail for an amazing entrance to any venue.

Gown and florals.
Carrie's gown is elegant and timeless, with a hint of fairytale beauty. The bodice lace is adorned in a soft floral design, with tiny petals sewn on top, creating subtle movement. Silk organza has been layered with tulle, to form a princess style skirt.

Captured amongst Iandra Castle grounds, she carries a bouquet of beautiful Australian grown blush roses and eucalyptus.

Maya's gown is for a bride who is bold. The style has been softened by the choice of the hail spot tulle, yet keeps its striking appearance. The firm structured bodice has been custom made using corset techniques. If you are after a dress with versatility, this is the one. With sleeves that are detachable, you can go from dreamy bridal to modern chic.

Warm autumn tones were chosen for Maya's florals. When partnered together the structural bouquet and dress creates a unique athletic that challenges the traditional idea of bridal.

Laura's gown is for the romantics. Inspired by the golden age of cinema and its leading ladies, this look channels soft femininity. The firm bodice sets the aline silhouette, with the skirt falling into tiers of gathered tulle. Wrapped around the waist and shoulders are long tulle straps that can be tied to your desired look. This really creates a feature for the delicate hail spot in the tulle, against the bare skin.

Her florals are a whimsical take on a modern bouquet. With white roses and tulips taking our focus, there is an explosion of foliage that cascades out in all directions. It truly portrays wild romance.

Make Up.
Laura- when creating this look I took the inspiration from the blushing bride, the idea that a bride is luminous and glowing on her day. Pink is feminine and fairytale, and by using a mixture of pink and shimmers in places that catch light, I was able to give Laura an ethereal sense of luminousity.

Carrie- Carrie was all about enhancing her natural beauty and trying to compliment her eyes and beautiful hair. Soft peaches and satin shades on the lid with a touch of blush give her a naturally beautiful glow.

Myra- Gothic was the aim in this look, its often dark and mysterious. Plum shades and wine red achieves this look by contouring myra's natural bone structure and drawing attention to her eyes and lips.
